«Once again, Chris Komashko releases a compelling set of sonic options to cerebrate upon. According to most dictionaries, deprivation is the loss or absence of parts, powers, or things that are needed. Is the self a part? Is the self a power? Is the self needed? In any case, listening to "Self Deprivation", you will encounter the pleasant absence of melody, familiar chords and structures. This absence can make you reflect about things that are not longer present. Hence the expression "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." Is heart the self?
Along these concise tracks you can be lifted momentarily by soothing ambiances, or be taken by the sudden arrival of extraneous sounds that keep you in a very attentive mode. The atmosphere created in this album has the power to raise different types of questions. Some of this questions might be about the strange nature of what you are hearing pan around your head. Like the nature that surrounds us, this creation is still unknown and that probably will remain like that for ages to come. In this album, "Mother" communicates in languages that can be understood only in thoughtless awareness. Even-though the titles of the tracks appear to be very humane, they carry a profound celestial meaning. Mother is full of human moments that suddenly take a divine turn. Within this divinity, a wide range of dark and light moments show you different aspects of the living and the non-living, the organic and the non-organic. Let Mother grab your hand and take you into territories without distress.» - Sebastian Alvarez
